"Peace is not the absence of war; Peace is the presence of harmony, joy and oneness. Peace reveals the absolute excellence of human life!" - Sri Chinmoy
This is the spirit in which the Peace Run (from 2005 - 2012 also known as World Harmony Run) was founded in 1987 by the late Peace Philosopher Sri Chinmoy (1931 - 2007).
The Peace Run is a global torch relay, wherein people promote peace, friendship and harmony by passing a flaming torch from hand to hand.
International teams of runners cross borders of all kind and thereby connect schools, communities, organisations and people from all walks of life.
(Kipchoge Keino runs with the Peace Torch in Kapenguria...)
( Paul Tergat meets Sri Chinmoy, the founder of the Peace Run...)
The Peace Run involved so far more than 10 million people, old and young, in over 150 countries. The flaming torch has visited several times numerable countries in Africa!
(Tegla Loroupe at the opening of the European Peace Run 2008 in Rome, Italy...)
The message of the Peace Run is very simple one: when we can run together in peace and harmony, then we also can live together in peace and friendship!
Each of us can change the world - by giving a living example to others and taking symbolically the first step! In this spirit we can run with the torch, carry it a few miles or just hold it and pass it on - every step counts!
Participate, when the torch visits your country! Yours is the first step!
